there's not really a limit defined for threads in .NET (VB.NET being a language such notion does not exist). The only limit I can think of is a physical one which is the hardware your code is running on. Why are you asking this question ? it seems that you have an underlying problem at hand :)

No...I have no underlying problem at all.

I have a process that does a series of HttpWebRequests each in their own thread
12 of them.

Because of the way I'm posting the request, I was asked if I could "do it all" in a separate data post
Since I'm keeping each Web Request  response stream open with
While streamResponse.CanRead...

This means that I would have (x) threads...up to 100 all with an open Response Stream
instead of my current 12

you may want to use a threadpool to manage your threads as it provides useful functionalities:

On a side note, you may easily have more than 100 threads going but do you send your request to a single webserver? If so, that webserver might be a bottleneck, in which case a threadpool will help you set a maximum number of concurrent threads to better tune the overall performance of your application.
